Baby eagle dies days after hatching on nest cam livestream

HANOVER, PA (AP) – A baby bald eagle has died just days after its hatching was livestreamed over a Pennsylvania Game Commission website.

The game commission announced Wednesday the eaglet that hatched Monday night has apparently died. The baby bird was seen initially moving about the nest. Its parents were feeding it but it later became limp in the streaming footage.

The commission says it won’t intervene in the situation. The bald eagle pair – near Codorus State Park in Hanover – has a second, unhatched egg in the nest and officials say it appears to be viable.

The agency says the livestream “provides an opportunity to view wildlife in its natural setting. Sometimes, that may include scenes that are difficult to watch.”
